A good 4 star it can be, if the Management decides to upgrade the property. No doubt about the location, it is beautiful overlooking the waters provided you get a room facing it.

I stayed here for two nights. Overall, not bad, but certainly not memorable. For the price I had higher expectations. The room was a good size, and bed was comfortable. However, the bath was missing its plug, and I battled to communicate with housekeeping to get one. I found the pillows too high, and having requested a flatter pillow, I...

Had a Business Lunch at the Federal Palace Hotel on a weekend (Saturday) and it was a very wonderful experience that surpassed my general expectations. It was time to have our lunch and the meals were hot and tasty. The staff on duty were cautious and very professional in their conduct. I hope to visit this restaurant very soon!

Had a breakfast meeting and was pleased at the variety of choices served at the buffet. You have a choice to either dine in or outside. Dining outside gives you a view of the river and the peacocks prancing all around you. Lovely experience and would love to spend some more time there.
